At twenty Kylie never imagined her life as it is.
She finds herself alone with a baby, abandoned by her husband without any answers.
When their daughter, Emma is 5 months old Brad simply doesn't come home. Leaving Kylie with a mountain of debt she is forced to look for a job, but as a high school drop-out her choices are limited.

A year later still working at a job that makes her feel dirty every night Kylie feels a connection with a stranger. A businessman that for some reason she can't take her eyes off of. Running into him again the next day at her waitressing job, he tries to ask her out, but she knows she doesn't belong in his perfect world.
The problem is Evan can't seem to get the sexy stripper out of his mind. He looks at her and knows she doesn't belong there. Something about her makes him feel alive. Kylie makes him want things that he felt he would never have. If only that stubborn woman would just let him take her out just once. He knew he could make her want the same things…he’s sure of it.
Their paths continue to cross at every turn when he is finally able to persuade her to take a chance on him.
After finally agreeing to a date they both can feel the undeniable attraction, but when her past comes knocking and his trust issues leave him running, it could ruin them before they are ever really given a chance.
Can they overcome her past and his controlling parents? Can the life Evan so desperately wants survive the train wreck of their past when they continue to drive them apart?

I have received this book as part of a blog tour in exchange of an honest review.
After being left with a little daughter by her husband, Kylie is forced to strip to earn enough to keep them both. A chance meeting with Evan, a handsome stranger in the club, turns into much more as she gets to know Evan.
The problem is, Brad – her husband – is back in the picture and trying to be a part of Kylie’s life again and her relationship with Evan is anything but easy.
Kylie is the main character in the book. She’s a good main character, forced to do things she never thought she would do to survive and take care of her daughter. I did like Kylie but I think I would have liked her more if she didn’t cry so much. I’m not saying she isn’t strong – she is – but she had some difficulties in finding her strength sometimes.
Evan is a good character as well. He’s determined and can be quite sweet. He would be absolutely amazing if he wasn’t so controlling sometimes.
Plot wise, there are a lot of little twists and turns in the story. Kylie’s life is definitely not easy and she has a lot to deal with. I just wanted her and Evan to find a way to fix the problems surrounding them and get together!
All in all, Stripped is an interesting story. It is fast-paced and well-written and I kept wanting to find out what would happen to the characters.
If you like romance with some angst, you might enjoy this book.
